Rabbi Gilbert Kollin

Rabbi Emeritus

After Rabbi Galpert’s death in 1988, we invited Rabbi Gilbert Kollin to become our teacher and spiritual leader. Serving between 1989 and 2003, Rabbi Kollin revitalized the morning Shabbat service, established a close relationship with Pasadena’s Muslim community after 9/11 2001, conducted classes sponsored by the American Jewish University at the temple, welcomed inter-faith families into the congregation, and served as President of the Los Angeles area Board of Rabbis. After retiring in 2003, he continues to be involved in the congregation, serving as the Rabbi Emeritus, teaching Talmud and Introduction to Judaism, and assisting with services and life-cycle events.
